Carrara also comes with hundreds of textures ready to be applied to your objects. Use the Carrara Texture Room to load and apply a texture to an object.
We have also included images and animations. These files have been created by some of the Carrara Beta Testers and the Carrara Team at MetaCreations. Enjoy these and use them as an inspiration.
At the same time, please be aware that all of the finished images and animations are the property of the creators as noted in the “Art Gallery” folder; each artist retains Copyright for their respective work. These images may not be reproduced or distributed.

Software Development Kit:
If you’re missing something within the application, you can create it yourself. The C++ developer can extend any part of Carrara, including the modelers and renderers. Creating a new plug-in is as simple as editing one of the examples provided in the SDK. The SDK even includes a unique user interface tool to build cross-platform plug-ins. The SDK provides you with the exactly the same tools and APIs that we used to create Carrara. We encourage you to go to the SDK folder to learn how to get the Carrara Software Development Kit.
